Because watermelons are native to Africa, they need hot, sunny conditions to thrive. Some varieties need up to 130 warm days to ripen. Most watermelons mature in 85 to 100 days.

According to Guinness World Records, the largest watermelon ever grown was grown in Arkansas by Lloyd Bright and weighed 268.8 pounds! The record was set in 2005 at the Hope Arkansas Big Watermelon Contest.



Due to the icy and rainy weather conditions, the snow tubes and snowshoes will NOT be available today.  :(

On Friday 1-19-2018 two classrooms from Imagination headed outdoors to try snowshoeing. It took some practice and patience to eventually get all the students kitted up and out onto the fields. The novelty of the experience made it joyful.  LINK TO 22 PICTURES

Ms. Lawyer and Mrs. Adams classes completed a unit study on Owls. They each had the opportunity to dissect an owl pellet with their science partner. The students were excited to discover bones and used a chart to determine what the owl might have eaten. The Kindergarten classes will complete their Owl Unit this week with a visit from the “Bird Diva” and Craig the Owl Guy.  LINK TO 50 PICTURES from Mrs. Lawyer.
